PARENT AND CAREGIVER SUPPORT GROUPS
LET’S TALK LD TM (LTLD) ’s Parent Advocate Support System (PASS) is a way to pay homage to our beginnings. LTLD’s work, like many grassroots organizations, began with a group of like-minded visionaries sitting around a dining room table, identifying a set of problems, and hatching a plan.
Our PASS program allows us to build supportive communities, throughout the Greater Los Angeles area, that are more geographically specific. Greater Los Angeles is geographically dispersed and that presents some unique challenges to community-building. PASS will allow LET’S TALK LD TM (LTLD) members to meet informally, and provide support to each other in addressing more pressing issues related to parenting and family dynamics that are unique to families with children with learning differences. Member families in the San Gabriel Valley (Pasadena, Glendale, La Cañada), the San Fernando Valley (Burbank, North Hollywood, Sherman Oaks), the West San Fernando Valley (Encino, Tarzana), West Los Angeles, and Central Los Angeles (Downtown Los Angeles, Silverlake, Echo Park) will host monthly meetings focused on addressing psychosocial dynamics within families. We are, of course, open to supporting families in other areas in the Greater Los Angeles area and throughout Southern California.
